WTF!!!

Well, let's hope it's not like the snow in April of '79. It should be gone by Friday, but that also means FOG w/ snow on the ground and temps. warming....yuck

a lot

It's 40* now, I think I may take a quick ride just to remind myself what riding feels like in case I don't do it for a while

....just checked weather.com, looks like we're back to 60's by the middle of this week. Not too bad.

We were going to blame you anyway

The good news is that they cancelled the heavy snow alert, so maybe we'll get less snow, of course the cage drivers are already playing bumper cars out on the streets

This Sucks When I looked out my window this morning it felt like the middle of December around here. But like you guys said the worse part is that after all that nice rain last week washed away the salt, were in for another batch.
